If you only have a week for your Balkan trip, Slovenia and Croatia are a match hard to beat. Of course, it would take much longer to discover all the amazing destinations they offer, but with the right itinerary, you can see some of the very best in both countries.
The Balkan tour of Croatia and Slovenia will take you to the mountainous Triglav National Park, vibrant capitals, and the pearl of Adriatic – Dubrovnik.
Dubrovnik is one of the most prominent tourist destinations in the Mediterranean sea and in recognition of its medieval architecture the town was added to the Unesco list of World Heritage sites.

In recent years it gained a lot of recognition as one of the filming locations for Game of Thrones, becoming a bucket list item for all the fans. Due to Dubrovnik’s location on the southern tip of Croatia, it is very easy to pop over the border further south into Montenegro.
A Balkan Holiday in Montenegro is not complete without a visit to Kotor, the oldest city in the country, founded by the ancient Romans. If you want to learn about the rich history of the city, hop on the Balkan Explorer Tour and trace the steps of the Venetians on the Walls of Kotor or relax and enjoy the lively coastal town Budva.
